If this lovely Southern fête by Scobey Photography isn’t the perfect way to wrap up the week here on Style Me Pretty Georgia, then I don’t know what is. Literally overflowing with the sweetest of DIY details, beautiful blooms by Southern Stems and gorgeous purple hues, I could get lost in this charming affair for hours. Not to mention one very fabulous wedding gown, which just now has me picking my jaw up off the floor. LOVE. All flawlessly planned by Simply Charming Events, I do believe this is what happens when traditional meets modern with just a dash of vintage style… complete and utter perfection.

From the Bride… The thing that made our wedding most beautiful are the people. Having all of our family and friends there with so much love, support and encouragement is something we are truly thankful for. It was the most beautiful day…to walk down the aisle, and for the first time that day, seeing the man I love, my better half, with tears of joy and a smile of an angel. Everything was just perfect from that moment on.
Nate and I wanted a cozy little wedding away from the city (he’s from NY and I’m from CA). We wanted a venue that would allow us do a lot of our own decorations and personalization. Naturally the Huntcliff River Club in Sandy Springs, GA was a perfect pick for us. Beautifully situated next to the Chattanooga River, the ceremony playground was tucked away under four large 100-year-old Oak trees. Just the perfect amount of shade for a warm September day in Georgia. The reception was nested on the second floor inside the club house, overlooking the ceremony site and the river. It was so peaceful and serene, it was our little tree house.
The best part in planning our wedding was getting the opportunity to bond and learn about each other. We DIY’d (Do-It-Yourself) everything we could because we want all the personal touches for our wedding. I also really enjoy making things, and Nate, believe it or not, enjoys helping. We made a perfect team!
Although we had a year to plan, boy did time fly! It started from finding a perfect venue and narrowing down all of our vendors (Google became our best friend), to creating all the little details such as our save the dates, the invitations, our cupcake tower, our CD favors, our moss covered initials, candy buffet accessories, ceremony programs, dinner menus, escort cards, table numbers, and arranging the ceremony and reception flowers. I must admit at times, it was overwhelming and it’s definitely not easy planning from across the country (California –> Georgia). However, it was well worth all of the time and efforts, because when we look back, we know we put a lot of our love into what we will call the “best day of our lives!”
